Die Ermordung seiner Frau im afrikanischen Busch bringt einen britischen UN-Mitarbeiter aus dem Gleichgewicht. Zunächst glaubt er an eine Beziehungstat, doch seine Recherchen bringen das Komplott eines weltweit agierenden Pharma-Unternehmens ans Tageslicht, das in Kenia ein unausgereiftes AIDS-Mittel mit verheerenden Folgen testete. Eindrucksvolle Mischung aus Melodram, Thriller und Politdrama, die in einer brisanten Geschichte Verfehlungen der Globalisierungspolitik zu Lasten der Dritten Welt anspricht. Ein ebenso engagierter wie anspruchsvoller Film, hervorragend gespielt und inszeniert. [film-dienst]

"Ein pensionierter Agent des britischen Geheimdiensts wird wieder aktiviert, um einen "Maulwurf" in den eigenen Reihen dingfest zu machen. Suggestive Verfilmung eines Romans von John Le Carré, der konsequent Helden- und Männlichkeitsbilder des Agentenfilm-Genres dekonstruiert. Vor dem tristen Szenario des Kalten Kriegs zeigt der listenreich, labyrinthisch und betont langsam entwickelte Film eine unglamouröse Welt der Spionage, in der Misstrauen und Undurchsichtigkeit regieren und das Politische und Professionelle auch privateste Beziehungen unterwandert, wobei Ideale und Loyalitäten auf der Strecke bleiben."

Madrid, Christmastime 1970: a prostitute gives birth to a son on a city bus in the dead of night. Victor, a handsome young misfit, is neither evil nor violent, but an inexperienced, hungry young man, and things tend go out of control when he is around. One such incident involves Elena, a rich girl dabbling in drugs, a terrible fight, one gun, and two police officers--David and Sancho. Victor, freed from prison, sleeps with the wives of the two officers who put him in jail -- first Sancho's wife Clara, then David's wife Elena, whom he both lusts for and bears a grudge against. The entire history of Spanish repression and guilt seems to gather inside the heads of these men and women. The essential question remains: How, as the grip of the Franco years is broken, will freedom reign?
